Shiba Inu (SHIB) has made four attempts at breaking out from a descending resistance line. While all of them have been unsuccessful, the price is gearing up for yet another one.
SHIB has been decreasing underneath a descending resistance line since Dec 24. This movement led to a low of $0.00000714 on June 18. So far, the price has made four unsuccessful breakout attempts, the most recent on Aug 14 (red arrow).
This also coincided with a rejection from the $0.00001780 horizontal resistance area. So far, the resistance line has been in place for 233 days.
During the short-term upward movement, the daily RSI has moved above 50. This is considered a sign of bullish trends. While the indicator is currently oversold, it has not yet generated any sort of bearish divergence, allowing for the possibility that the price will break out.
The six-hour chart does not show a clear pattern. While it is possible that the price is following an ascending support line, the line has only been validated twice.
There seems to have been a resistance area at $0.0000128, which is likely to provide support if a retracement occurs.
SHIB wave count analysis
Cryptocurrency trader @Altstreetbet tweeted a chart of SHIB, stating that the price is in the process of completing wave four.
The most likely wave count does indicate that SHIB is in wave three of a five-wave upward movement. The sub-wave count is given in yellow.
If the count is correct, it would suggest that the price will break out from the aforementioned resistance line during wave three. Afterward, it will validate it as support during wave four prior to resuming its upward movement.
